Here is a nice Antique Kienzle Bracket Clock for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself!
Beautiful German oak case clock. The maker is Kienzle and the movement has "18cm" and"158" on it. The clock dates to the 1920s period.
The wood case is all there. Shows some finish loss, still looks good. Nice impressed detailing on the front of the wood case of the clock. Front left seam of case at base has opened up a bit. Flat glass in the front wood door, no cracks or blistering.
Nice detailing to the oak case on the front, sides and especially the top of it. Has a great style look to it with the pointed pitched steeple top. The case has wood side legs on it that run from front to back and look appropriate to the clock as well. The rear door is securely attached to the case.
We have only wiped down the wood case with Murphy's wood cleaner and orange oil, could still used a good cleaning to bring the original beauty of this piece out to its' full potential.
Nice looking face on this clock. Silver colored with black numbering, some finish loss. The clock hands match and look appropriate to the clock. Hands are a little loose and could use some tightening attention. There is gold trim around the clock face.
Great looking 8 day brass movement on this clock. The clock has a great beat to it with the pendulum off and on it.
The clock movement has been running and striking since we acquired the clock. Just cleaned the pivot points and bushings and oiled them. Nice gong unit, strikes once on the half hours and the hours on the hour. The two springs feel sound when keyed. This clock is in running and striking condition.
The movement has the Kienzle logo on the back of the movement and DR Patent below it. The pendulum that came with the clock also looks appropriate to it, not sure that original to the clock. Some loss of the gold finish to the back plate of the movement. The clock was made circa the 1920s. The clock will come with a wind key.
The glass and wod door over the clock face look great. The glass is not blistered or cracked. The wood front door is firmly attached to the clock case by its' hinges.
This was definitely a quality clock for its' time. The rear door is still firmly attached to the case. The latch for the rear door is still there and operates. The hinges look appropriate on the front and rear doors.
The clock stands 15-5/8" tall, by 12-1/8" across, by 7.5" wide. The clock face is 5.25" across. This is a very heavy clock, so expect the shipping costs to reflect that. You do not find such a fine example of this clock maker's work available very often, so do not miss this one. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
The pictures provided both complement and supplement the listing description, so please look at them very closely as well. With old items, there is no way one can capture all the little imperfections in words, so the two media are meant to be the full description.
As can be expected when dealing with an antique clock, some adjustments may be needed after shipping to get the clock re-running correctly again as they can be very delicate. If you have not had experience with old mechanical clocks before, I would suggest you steer clear. One really needs to have the patience, and skill to work with these great works of art. They are not our modern plug in and go, or change the battery clocks. Please ask any questions relating to this matter, before you decide to purchase it.

Don't be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions! You can also pick this clock up in Wilmington, DE should you not want to have the clock shipped to you. The clock may be partially disassembled to be more safely shipped to you. So, expect some reassembly.
